    Office environment is dull, bland. Lack of clarity of roles and responsibilities across divisions.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Clarify mission of each division, and the roles and responsibilities of each title within it so that it's clear who to go to for what -- outside of the division, too.

    I worked at Cisco Systems full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great brand name and experience you can later leverage.

    Cons

    Easy to get lost and the best performers aren't always noticed. It's not what you know but who you know kid!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    It's simple, people managers should be people that 1) have an interest in managing and leading and 2) are good at it, i.e. they have the requisite people and soft skills to do the job effectively.
